When our new journey first began after loosing our second oldest son in a four-wheeler accident on April 19th, 2017, I started blogging here about that new journey. Also right off I knew at some point down the road I would want to write a book about our loss and of the hope we have in Christ. And now I am anxious to see that book come into reality.
Why? Because I want to share the hope we have with others. I want to share our story to be an encouragement and blessing to someone else. I believe someone somewhere needs to hear what God has done and is doing for us. I know how much I was blessed and encouraged by reading the books of other families stories of loss or tragedy. How they made it thorough. And what all they went through and emotions they experienced, ect... , which helped me know I was not alone. Others had walked this road. And God was by their side every step of the way. And He would be for us too!!
And I want to be that same blessing and encouragement to someone else with the story God has given us. My constant prayer right after I found out our son died was this, "If there is any one who knows us who doesn't know you Lord, may this be their moment." I felt God would give life to others through the death of our son.
I am so glad to have this blog and to have been able to share so much on here over this past year. I pray that it has been blessing and help to someone. And that they can see God's greatness, and feel the strength, peace and joy that comes from a life founded in Him and which only He can give.
I suppose we will never know why this happen to our family. And I don't why your going through what you are going through. But I know this. Our God does not make mistakes. He is giver and taker of life. With Him there is no accidents. He has a plan and a purpose for every move He makes. His ways are not our ways. He loves and cares for his children way more than we can ever comprehend. And He will see us through our every storm. He promised He would always be with us. He will never leave us nor forsake us. This I know!
Just trust Him. And cling to Him with all you got. He's got you!
We grieve, but not with out hope.
In Him, Mae
